Design From The Ground Up: Architecture

June 8, 2015

By Tab Byrum

It’s everywhere we look, it’s the homes we live in, the buildings where we work, our houses of worship and the structures where we store our art. Architecture is defined as the science of designing buildings and some non-building structures. Today we are going to touch on Architecture and look at some beautiful accomplishments in Architecture as we prepare for tomorrow when we will take a look at Portraits Of The New Architecture 2, a new book by Assouline Publishing.

Whether you are a fan of I. M. Pei, Frank Gehry or Frank Lloyd Wright, it seems we all have a favorite type of Architecture.  From the pyramids in Egypt and castles in Europe to the cliff dwellings of the Anasazi and the igloos of the Inuits, there is always a plan on how to build something. Someone has to figure out what goes where, how much weight the walls can support and the most efficient type of everything going into building the structure. Join me today as we check out some of the most famous dwellings on our planet and check back tomorrow for a look at Portraits Of The New Architecture 2. Enjoy!!!
